Daly walks off course at Australian Open

John Daly walked off the course at the Australian Open after

hitting a number of balls into the water on the 11th hole at The


Daly was 7 over after 10 holes Thursday after appearing to be

upset with a ruling on the 10th that penalized him for grounding

his club in a hazard. He casually putted out on the 10th and took a

triple-bogey 7.

On the 11th, he hit ball after ball into the water, some landing

in the center of the pond, before a tour official joined him.

Moments later, Daly shook hands with playing partners Craig Parry

and Hunter Mahan and walked off the course.
